Cordelia Fine has a first-rate intellect and writing talent to burn. In her new book, Delusions of Gender, she takes aim at the idea that male brains and female brains are wired differently, leading men and women to act in a manner consistent with decades-old gender stereotypes. Armed with penetrating insights, a rapier wit, and a slew of carefully researched facts, Fine lowers her visor, lifts her lance, and attacks this idea full-force. Whether her adversaries can rally their forces and mount a successful counter-attack remains to be seen. What s certain at this point, however, is that in Delusions of Gender Cordelia Fine has struck a terrific first blow against what she calls neurosexism. --William Ickes, author of Everyday Mind Reading: Understanding What Other People Think and Feel
